TMST 7137 A History of the Society of Jesus (Fall: 3 )
Since its inception in the 16th century, the Society of Jesus has emerged as a leading force in the Catholic Church, bringing about a new thrust in spirituality and religious life, and putting also its imprint on education, science and culture. We will explore the timeline of the worldwide history of the Jesuits from the foundation to our days, including the Suppression (1773) and Restoration (1814). Throughout this journey, we will encounter Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier, Jean de Brébeuf, Mateo Ricci, Jan Philipp Roothaan, Pedro Arrupe, as well as the themes of education, mission, inculturation, and Vatican II among others.
